INBRE Research Internships
Undergraduates at MSU-Bozeman in the biomedical and health sciences can apply for INBRE Research Internships, which may extend over several semesters or serve students just beginning their research experience. See Undergraduate Research for more information about the academic year program.
Summer research experiences are available for both MSU students and students enrolled in INBRE Western Region institutions. Click here for information on the summer program for MSU students. Click here if you are interested in the 2014 summer research opportunity for visiting undergraduates.
INBRE Public Health Internships for Undergraduates
The INBRE Public Health Internship Program provides undergraduate students from a wide range of academic disciplines exposure to real community health issues, and an understanding of the tools available to investigate and solve these issues. Working with a community health agency, interns spend 10 hours a week providing services to the agency and pursuing a focused research project associated with their work. Interns gain first-hand experience working to address the health needs of rural and underserved populations through the agencies’ collaborative, community-based approach to health care. The internship is a paid internship, for both Fall and Spring semesters, 10 weeks per semester, and is open to enrolled MSU-Bozeman undergraduates only.

Undergraduates and graduate students may also apply for travel funds if their research abstracts are accepted for poster or podium presentations at regional, national, or international research conferences. See Travel Grants for more information.
Graduate Student Fellowships
Graduate student fellowships are available in collaboration with the Molecular Bioscience Program. Visit the Molecular Bioscience Program for more information.
